Fitzgerald was a product of the period that was better known as the Jazz Age in the 1920s and excelled in writing short stories and novels. Writers from all over the world and his contemporaries, all considered him to be a writer of exquisite quality and it is not a wonder that he is still revered by devotees of literature and casual readers alike. “Fitzgerald was a better just plain writer than all of us put together. Just words writing”, wrote John O’ Hara to another famous American writer John Steinbeck and similar sentiments have been expressed by plenty of authors, critics, readers and scholars alike over the past decades. Although F. Scott Fitzgerald is primarily known as a great novelist, it should not be forgotten that he started off his writing career as a short story writer and wrote plenty of critically acclaimed stories. In addition to that, he has also written poems and that is something that makes him a versatile literary genius. Keep reading to know more about the life and works of this accomplished writer. Fitzgerald got married to Zelde Sayre, whose father was an Alabama Supreme Court Judge on October 26, 1921. The couple had only one child, a daughter named Frances Scott Fitzgerald, who became a journalist and writer in her own right. The popular novelist was an alcoholic and his wife’s mental breakdown pushed him further towards chronic alcoholism. He left her in 1937 when he moved to Hollywood and there he started a romantic relationship with journalist Sheila Graham. On December 21, 1940, at the age of only 44, F. Scott Fitzgerald died of a heart attack in his home in Hollywood. He was cremated at the ‘St Mary’s Cemetery’ at Rockville, Maryland.
